|Integrated Amplifiers - Luxman vs Pass Labs |
I own a 505uxii and love the simplicity of it. I was looking at a INT-25 or INT 60 but I like the fact that the Luxman integrateds have phono and headphone stages. I didn't want to have to spend more money on phono/headphone amps and additional ca...

|2022 is almost here. Why are you here? |
I am here to learn and help others if I can. I don't judge another's audiophile journey---I try not to disrespect anyone even if I think they're being a jerk or too opinionated. There are some on here that seem to have a chip on their shoulders or...
|Just getting into Streaming, need help and advice|
I had BluOS on a NAD integrated a few years ago and didn't like it at all. I stream Spotify Connect via Wifi now through a CDP/streamer and it sounds great and its easy to use. In my experience, Wifi streaming is better if you can do it.
|Luxman 590AXII Discontinued??|
Interesting--perhaps they are replacing it like they are doing with the 507uxii---the 507z will be out soon. I read somewhere that all of their integrated amps may be upgraded for their 100th anniversary coming up in the next year or so. We shall ...
|What'd You Get For Xmas?|
Got myself a REL sub before Christmas. I gave a young friend of mine some vinyl---he just started getting into analog and he's loving it.
|Efficient speaker: Zu, Tekton, Volti, Klipsch, Fleetwood?|
I have the Tekton Lore Reference speakers connected to my vintage system---great speakers and very efficient. I've listened to them with Luxman integrated amps and vintage Denon pre-main amps. Good luck!
|Audio Research or Luxman?|
I believe the 507UXii is being replaced with the 507z with some upgrades. Not sure if/when the 505 or 509 will be updated.
Unfortunately, this occurs in other hobby forums too. Someone always manages to interject their political views which ticks off several people---and there it goes! It usually gets really nasty before the posts are removed. Go to the political foru...
|Products you added to your system in 2021 that made most impact to your music enjoyment |
Added a REL T7x to my system---much more depth and punch. Highly recommended.
|What are you using as a streamer? Constructive feedback please.|
I have a Marantz ND8006 CDP/streamer---very happy with it and easy to operate.
|Recommend an Entry Level Turntable (And maybe an integrated Amp)|
Check out some of the Yamaha integrated amps---they have several that can fit most budgets and a decent phono amps built in so you may not need to purchase a separate phono amp. I have a Denon PMA 757 from 1985 and only use it for streaming from m...

|Zu vs. Tekton? -- your comparisons on price, build, sound|
I have a pair of Tekton Lore References connected to my second system that has a vintage Denon PMA757 (80 wpc) with a Zen DAC V2---they sound amazing. I've also connected them to my Luxman 505uxii. Mine are in the blue finish and I get many compli...
